2) Add Please Share to Slack

When you first log in to the Please Share application, you will see a message on the top of the page. Selecting the “Add to Slack” button will take you to a Slack page where you can install the Please Share app.

There are a couple things to mention:

  • You will need to review and accept the Please Share permission requests, which are pretty straightforward.
  • When adding the Please Share app to Slack, you will need to select the channel where you would like updates to appear. This can be changed later from within the Please Share app, but we suggest you pick an existing channel where general company announcements are posted (e.g., "announcements," "company-news" or something similar).
